Sail on Jay…

November 12th, 2010

The Buffett World community, and parrothead community as a whole, lost a dear friend this week. Long-time forum member Jay Stevens (username: 1more) lost a short battle with cancer Sunday night at the age of 46.

Jay never met a stranger. He always had a smile and a handshake for people he didn’t know as well as those he did. If you met Jay once you were a friend for life. His sense of humor was unmatched, and he never missed an opportunity to poke fun at himself. Jay loved his Redskins and Braves and was always trying to bring new people into the parrothead world. But above all he was a devoted husband to Amy (username: Tallship), whom he loved more than life itself.

A celebration of Jay’s life will be held this weekend and many of those attending will be in their Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, and flip flops, just as Jay would have wanted.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, Tennessee 38105. Condolences may be registered at www.jtmorriss.com.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to Amy. And to Jay… sail on…
